Race, Social Justice, and the Arts in DC: Sheryll Cashin in Conversation with Natalie Hopkinson

Please join writers Natalie Hopkinson and Sheryll Cashin for a lively exploration of racial justice, segregation, and the resilience of Black culture within our shared, ever-evolving democracy - in the context of our city, Washington, DC.

This hour-long conversation will probe the topic of DC's changing racial and economic demographics and touch upon what both segregation and gentrification have meant for its residents, in the arts, schools, neighborhoods, and halls of local and federal power.  

Additionally, we are honored to present Dr. Hopkinson with the PRRAC Civil Rights Award marking our 30th anniversary. 


Natalie Hopkinson, Associate Professor of Communication, Culture and Media Studies at Howard University, co-founder of Don't Mute DC, and author of Go-Go Live and other works.

Sheryll Cashin, Professor of Law, Georgetown Law and PRRAC Board Member, author of White Space, Black Hood (forthcoming) and contributing editor, Politico Magazine.

Moderated by Megan Haberle, Deputy Director, PRRAC .
